Sheffield Utd vs Watford Preview

Newly promoted side, Sheffield United are having the time of their life in the English Premier League. They have defied preseason expectations and are contenders to qualify for European football next season. 

Chris Wilder’s men have won plaudits for their attractive brand of football. Their relentless pressing on and off the ball as well as highly organized structure make them the nightmare of any opponent. 

The Blades currently sit 5th on the log and have won three matches on the bounce in the league. They have amassed 28 points in the League and are just 5 points behind Chelsea in 4th. Their defensive record is the third best in the league and they have conceded just 16 goals all season.

Last season’s FA cup finalists, Watford have failed to build on last season’s 11th place finish and are rooted firmly on the bottom of the table. They picked up only their second win of the season in their last match, a shock 1-0 win over Manchester United following an equally impressive performance over league leaders, Liverpool.

New Manager, Nigel Pearson has got the side playing with new-found confidence and there is a growing belief among players and supporters that they can go on and turn their season around. The Hornets are only just 4 points behind 17th placed Southampton and a run of good results in their next couple of matches will do them a world of good.

Sheffield Utd vs Watford Team News

Oliver McBurnie’s strike proved enough to secure all three points for Sheffield United in their last Premier League clash against Brighton and Hove Albion. The blades are now on a run of three successive wins in the Premier League following their shock 0-2 loss to Newcastle in early December. They have tasted defeat just once in their last five premier league clashes.

The Blades are proving to be the darkhorse of the competition and sit pretty on 5th position ahead of the likes of Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal. 

Their success can be linked to their superb defensive performances and they have conceded just 16 goals all season. They have also kept a clean sheet in three of their last five matches at home.

Sheffield’s next two matches after this fixture, are away to both
Manchester City and Liverpool, hence they will be more determined to secure a result in this fixture.

Watford recorded a morale-boosting 2-0 victory at home to Manchester United in their last run out. Two goals in the early stages of the second half were enough to secure victory for The Hornets who took due advantage of the away side’s problems. This was just their second win for the entire league season. 

The Hornets are placed 20th on the league table and it’s all with good cause. They have scored just 11 goals all season, one of the lowest tallies in Europe and have conceded a massive 32 goals. They have secured just one win away from home this season.

Sheffield Utd vs Watford Predictions

In-form Sheffield United are massive favorites to pick up all three points, but it could prove to be a tricky afternoon for The Blades. Watford are full of confidence following their strong result over the weekend and could prove to be a potential banana skin. That said, Sheffield United are expected to edge this one out narrowly.
